Today’s review is about Nivea’s Good-bye Cellutite Anti Cellulite gel. I bought this almost 3 years ago after I visited multiple sites to discover more about the product. Everyone has cellulite. Here is the definition of it : “persistent subcutaneous fat causing dimpling of the skin, especially on women’s hips and thighs”. Even slim people have it!.
I came across this gel and I thought why not try it. Nivea is a popular brand, so I thought this would be a phenomenal product. Also, it says on the tube that it has Skin’s own L-Carnitine incorporated in it. L-Carnitine is known to firm up the skin and have antiaging properties. That greatly appealed to me. It comes in a blue tinged tube, that is easy to hold and dispense product out of.
The product is a cool blue colored gel. It is so beautiful and has the most amazing smell. It’s consistency makes it easy to apply on to your skin.
I applied in on my thighs consistently. As per the tube, I was supposed to see noticeably toned and smoothed skin after 2 weeks and visibly reduced signs of cellulite after 4 weeks. However, after months and months of usage, nothing happened. That’s when I realized. It is true that cellulite gels or creams just don’t work. It doesn’t depend on whether it’s from a known brand or not. It just doesn’t work. What could work though are exercising, giving your muscles a good workout, scrubbing your body and dry body brushing (in the long run)!. Then after some time, I stopped using it. I still had some left in the tube and I thought I should definitely do a review for you guys 🙂
Price: AED 31.50 (if I remember it right) for the tube containing 200ml.
So, don’t bother buying such products. If I had that knowledge back then, I wouldn’t have spend money on it.
